Global Food Flavours & Flavour Enhancers Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A food flavour is the perceived taste of a food or drink. The term "flavour" encompasses both the basic tastes and smells of a substance. Flavour enhancers are chemicals that are added to foods to enhance their flavour. These additives are used to make bland-tasting foods more appetizing, and they can also be used to mask unpleasant odours. Food flavours and flavour enhancers play an important role in the enjoyment of food.

Monosodium Glutamate (MSG):

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer that belongs to the class of food additives known as sodium salts. It is also used as a texturizer and preservative in processed foods such as canned vegetables, frozen meals, soups and snacks. MSG is produced during the fermentation of sugarcane or corn starch or through chemical synthesis.

Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP):

Hydrolyzed vegetable protein is a form of plant-based protein that has been chemically broken down into amino acids. It is also known as vegetarian beef flavoring or just vegetarian flavoring. HVP can be found in various products such as meat substitutes, dairy alternatives, and other food products like seasonings & sauces.

Application Insights:

The restaurants segment held the largest share of over 70.0% in 2017. The use of food flavours and enhancers in restaurants has witnessed a significant rise due to growing consumer demand for variety and innovation in food products across the world. Moreover, rising disposable income levels coupled with changing lifestyles have led consumers to spend more on dining out than at home cooking meals, which is also expected to boost industry growth over the forecast period.

Food processing industry emerged as another key application segment for food flavouring and flavour enhancers with a revenue share of around 12% in 2017 owing to increasing product usage during manufacturing processes such as canning, baking, smoking & curing meats among others. Rising health concerns among consumers regarding additives used by manufacturers are expected to force their hand toward additive-free foods thereby influencing consumption trends toward healthier options that are less seasoned or flavored compared to their processed counterparts which will further drive market growth over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region accounts for a major part of the food processing industry, which has resulted in high demand for enhancers. China, India, Japan and Korea are some of the largest markets in this region that have supported growth over past years.

North America accounted for more than 10% share of overall revenue owing to growing awareness among consumers regarding healthy diet patterns coupled with increasing health concerns such as obesity and heart diseases associated with processed foods. Moreover, presence of a large number of manufacturers has also contributed towards significant market growth across this region. U.S., Mexico and Canada are some prominent countries accounting for majority shares within North America regional market space.

Europe is one of the mature markets accounting high demand from end-use industries due to extensive research & development activities by key players coupled with new product launches.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for convenience foods: The growing demand for convenience foods is one of the key growth drivers for the food flavours and flavour enhancers market. Convenience foods are those that can be easily prepared and consumed, without any major preparation time or hassle. They are generally pre-packaged or frozen, and require little to no cooking time. This has led to an increase in their popularity among consumers, especially working professionals and young adults who lead busy lives.
  • Rising disposable incomes: Another key growth driver for the food flavours and flavour enhancers market is rising disposable incomes around the world. With more money at their disposal, consumers are increasingly willing to spend on premium products that offer better quality and taste than traditional options available in their region or country of residence. This includes high-quality processed foods that use better quality ingredients, including food flavours and flavour enhancers which play a critical role in enhancing the taste of these products..
